how long after the IRS has processed your return does it take to get your refund?

The WMR site is saying by the 7th, but I talked to an IRS agent last night and my return has been processed and she said that the anticipated date was the 7th also. I was accepted on the 18th of Jan, the SBBT bank says the 1st, so does anyone know when they will DD my return? Thank you in advance. I hope someone knows the answer to this....
  • More than likely you will get it on the 1st the IRS always gives the banks time to post your refund. that's why they say by the 7th. I hope this helps.
I just called the IRS because I wanted a solid answer from a real person. I  filed my taxes on January 13, I was accepted on the 19th and then told I was going to receive my DD on the 25 then changed to the 2/1 then to 2/7. When I  called them (literally five minutes ago, waited for 20 minutes) she said that my refund is scheduled to deposit on 2/3 this Friday. So your best bet is to call 800-829-0582 ext 362 and talk directly to someone
  • I'm reading on Facebook from alot of people,that they have used Turbo tax, getting back a refund.No one has recived their refund because turbo is holding the money in their accounts to draw a % off our money for themself's.We are suppose to recive our's tomorrow.I so hope this will happen.If not we will no longer us turbo.
  • I hope it happens tomorrow too, or by the latest Friday. I will not use TT if they hold our money to draw in a % of interest off of it. That's crap!!! Thank you for everyone who has replied. I guess I will call the IRS again and ask for a definite DD date. This years taxes have been so messed up!! I know one thing I will NEVER file mine 1 day early again. This was my first year to do so and I will not make that mistake again!!
Unfortunately the IRS has been experiencing delays with processing refunds, please read the following article for more details.

I hope this helps!
  • We know they have... I have never waited this long before... I just want my refund already!!!!

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
